Dante Sinclair never cared about his family's money. All the young billionaire ever wanted was to be a cop, and now that he's a homicide detective in Los Angeles, he's a damn good one. But when he is injured and loses his partner in the line of duty, he returns to his vacation home in Amesport, Maine, to recover.
Sarah Baxter, a brilliant, young doctor still struggling with her stifled upbringing, has recently moved from Chicago to sleepy Amesport to escape her past, hoping to find peace. When Sarah is assigned to Dante's case, there's an instant heat between them. They couldn't possibly be more different, yet their igniting passion is impossible to ignore. As new feelings awaken within Sarah, her haunted past returns, threatening her once again. But can Dante overcome his grief and discover the secrets Sarah is hiding in time to protect and rescue her?

Read this book and thoroughly enjoyed it as with all of J.S.Scott books. Got the audio book to listen to the book in sync with rewrewading. Eliuzabeth Powers reads beautifully.
Retired to start my second life i.e. actually do everything I want to do before I die - include be a published author - watch this space!
I gave up after 2 chapters as it's so badly written. Far too many cliches and repetition.
If you are looking for clichéd characters and minimal plot interrupted by unnecessary and overly graphic sex scenes then this is the book for you. If, like me, you weren't looking for that, find a different book to listen to.
yes I've read a lot of J.S Scott's books and always love them here's Elizabeth powers before and always like to hear her voice reading
Wow I was glad how it ends in a god way but wish it was longer
near the ending when he gets off the plane and goes back home to her and what they say and do amazing
yes I first read the second one of this series (the forbidden billionaire)
But even thought loved this book I felt more emotionally connected to the second book
if you loved this audiobook I found book 2 even better
THE FORBIDDEN BILLIONAIRE
"80% Sex, 20% plot"
The potential for a good plot was there for this book, but character development and storyline were so underdeveloped that it was just annoying.
"A book with potential"
The story line was promising and interesting, but it was rushed and got lost in the sex scenes which didn't seem to fit the characters. The narrator did a good job, but the story struggled.
"IT'S NO ORDINARY BILLIONAIRE'S STORY EITHER"
With only a few references to being one of the Sinclair Billionaire's and donating some money this is really about Dante a physically and mentally messed up Cop with Survivor's Guilt. He's been injured during a shoot out, goes back to Amesport Maine to recovery and meets Sarah his Doctor who snaps him out of his death wish depression with a few harsh words and an accidental spilling of her blood. Rather than being upset with her he's grateful and sorry so he goes to see her with a peace offering to thank her and that's when the sparks begin to fly between them.
A nice slow building sexy romance with an multi faceted Alpha male who is kind, thoughtful, caring, possessive, dominant, bossy and protective so when he finds out that his beautiful, caring, tender Sarah had been viciously attacked before and now her attacker is back threatening her life he goes into 'Cop mode' to save her life. There's suspense, a twist, a spanking in a Sub/Dom sex scene and more heated sex, a tension filled hostage scene, other Sinclair Billionaires, friends and secondary characters and a nicely built romance that leads to last minute declarations.
Told from dual POV's, a great narrator who could do good Alpha male voices and portrayed all the emotions well. This is the second Sinclair brother to find love as The Billionaire's Christmas is book 0.5 in the series and tells the story of Grady Sinclair and Emily who are mentioned a few times in this listen. It's not necessary to listen to it before this one but I wished I had to give me the full background.
Worth a credit? Yes it would have been but, at $7.34, my under $10 rule applied saving a credit for a more expensive but maybe not as enjoyable a listen.... and it's even cheaper at the moment being on sale at $5.24 so snap it up now. And I'm about to snap up book 0.5 for the same price but unfortunately with much less hours.
If you're sexually deprived, get this book because that's all it is about. Stupid stupid stupid book. I hated it. I gave a better performance rating because I felt so sorry for the poor woman who had to read it out loud.
OMG, these characters were totally unbelievable. The narrator made the main character sound like she might have limited intelligence; the pace and the way the book unfolds is more like fantasy. I could not finish this book because it was so bad.
I liked the characters and enjoyed the storyline. But the overly vulgar language and tons of gratuitous sex detracted from the story.
"Got So Tired of the "F" Word"
I am glad I paid a small amount for this book. Got one more-not sure I am going to listen. Needs some more substance.
"No Ordinary Billionaire"
Very good story, but could have done without the detailed sexual scenes. Very well written.
"Pass the bucket!"
Not very exciting, didn't enjoy the characters talking to themselves every five minutes. Didn't finish it as I ran out of receptacles in which to vomit.
Love the Billionaire books!! Thumbs up.
Love the make possessiveness, and danger. Hope to read more love stories. Thank you.
